The half-marathon playlist

Okay, so with 27 days until the half marathon, I put together a potential playlist. With my pacing as it is, I figure I'll need about 2.6 hours of music from start to finish, so I'm going to give myself three hours of tunes.

Below I've posted the tentative list. It's almost 4 hours of music listed, but I know that some of the songs will get removed. Keep in mind that some of the songs were chosen for the beat, some for the lyrics, and some because I have particular memories associated with them that make me smile.
